    say that is for a NAS but maybe works and be better than the WD greens, I see a lot good reviews on red, maybe is better than greens, I see mixed reviews on greens... bad and good... so...

    GREEN

    2 REDS and a GREEN. Better served with the RED ones for storage only. But still, not that specific models you are citing....:):apple:

    Using 1 x 3TB WD as a BkUp disk for a 3 x 2TB Seagate raid 0. The back up is every 2hrs. Working well in the 2010 MacPro for 4wks so far.
